Weekend recap

After my doctor's appointment on Friday, I went back to work to finish out the day.  Once I got home, I opted to go for a walk since the weather was so nice.  I ended up walking for about an hour.  It was lovely!  I even saw a few butterflies along the way and one of them let me get a really great shot of it!






This pic is unfiltered and came out great even with a cell phone pic!

Yesterday, my mom, aunt and I drove to New Orleans to go to the National World War II museum.  I haven't been in about 13 years, in fact, Chris and I went on one of our first dates there back in 2000!  Needless to say, much has changed with the museum since then.  It has a total of 5 separate buildings now, although only 3 were open (more will be opening up in 2014).  I didn't take too many pics of the museum but I do have a couple.  We had a really nice day and I'd highly recommend a trip there if you are ever in NOLA!







We drove home and I stopped by a local seafood place and picked up some dinner for Chris and I.  I got home and watched the dismal LSU game last night. 

Oh!  I did get the bag in the mail from the drawing that I won on Karen's blog, Just Me and My Running Shoes.  I love it!  It came out so pretty!  I was a little disappointed that my blog name wouldn't fit on it but that's the way it goes, I guess.  I ended up putting my name on it.  The coloring is so pretty!  The bag itself is plum colored.  I know it's kinda hard to tell in this pic. 





Today, Chris and I are just lounging around.  I need to meal prep for next week and go to the grocery store, so we will do that in a bit.  Until my Daryl Dixon comes on tv tonight, we are going to spend the day getting caught up on American Horror Story too.  Chris and I are taking off tomorrow to help his parents with some stuff and once we are done with that I'm thinking of taking some time and going to get some laps in the pool since I'm laying off the foot for a bit.  I also want to go see Carrie at the movies, if we can squeeze it in.

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Are you all having a good weekend?  What are your weekend plans?

  1. Our weekend is over here in Australia but we had a nice quiet one. Hubby worked Saturday and I enjoyed the quiet at home by myself. Yesterday we talked a lot and just did a little yard work. It was nice.

  2. That's a cool picture of the butterfly!

    I am getting ready to watch some Zombies! Every Sunday my family meets at my Mom's house to watch together.

    I got all my regular weekend stuff done, like laundry, grocery shopping, food prep, and 2 workouts!

    1. I liked it! I'm enjoying this season so far. It was nice seeing Michonne show some emotion. I wonder who is behind the flashlight and body burning though...
